It’s time to join the fight against future deadly pandemics and work towards a safer, more prepared future.
As recent cases of Zika, Ebola and influenza have shown, the world is drastically unprepared for a pandemic outbreak, but you have the power to change that. Currently, alliances like the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), are working to finance and develop new vaccines to prevent and contain infectious disease epidemics.
Polio, which fell from 350,000 cases worldwide in 1988 to only 37 cases last year, is the perfect... example of how effective vaccines can be in stopping disease in its tracks.
It’s time to call on the G20 to support initiatives like CEPI and the World Health Organization's Contingency Fund for Emergencies.

Unseen Enemy, a new documentary presented by our partner Johnson & Johnson, provides an in-depth look at the growing threat of infectious diseases and what individuals, institutions, and communities can do to prepare for and prevent the next pandemic. You can watch the trailer and learn more about Johnson & Johnson’s work in infectious disease at www.jnj.com/progress.
To learn more, tune into CNN tomorrow Saturday, April 15 at 9pm EST to watch the film and hear from health workers, scientists and families of those affected by pandemic outbreaks.
Then join us in calling on the G20 to prioritize pandemic preparedness by funding vital organizations designed to make the future safer for all of us.
